Drawing inspiration from the vintage 1960s sidewalk surfing era, this setup blends the past with modern parts for an authentically soulful cruising experience. It takes some time to get used to riding, especially if you come from a double-kick, surfskate, or longboard background. But once you sync with its rhythm, it’s on!
Length: 30″ / 76.2 cm
Width: 6.75″ / 17.145 cm
Wheelbase: 15.75″ / 40 cm
The deck is made of Ash and Mahogany to replicate those old Hobie sidewalk surfer skateboards. It was made by Deviate Board Co, based in Brooklyn, New York.
Contact Patch: 28mm
The wheels are 60mm EZ Hawgs by Landyachtz. I haven’t experienced any wheelbite, however, I still haven’t pushed it that hard. I might get some Powell G-Slides.
Head Type: Allen
I chose countersunk because I want to ride this barefoot and not be bothered by the bolts. Allen bolts because I always somehow strip phillips head. Allen allows for more leverage and less likely to strip. More on skate hardware here.
